    I just love all of these detailed embroidered dresses. I also would love to know how
    all of these were made.
    Is there a way in each magazine for the year, that you do an article on these, including the designer; offering some of these designs to the public?
    I’m sure they all have these fancy 10-16 needle machines, but a home designer could
    somehow split a design to get the same effect. Please???
